Beautiful Woodsy Barn Wedding in Lindstrom, Minnesota
In 2018 Cecelia and Doug took their first big trip together to Glacier National Park to celebrate their five year anniversary. The pair decided to stray from their travel itinerary and hike to Cracker Lake which was a 12 mile excursion for them! When they reached the lake, they spent some time soaking in the beautiful views of the mint blue water surrounded by the mountains. As they packed up to go, Doug told Cecelia he had something heavy in his pack that he wanted her to carry back. Doug pulled out a poncho and unraveled it to reveal a box with a beautiful ring inside. How cute is that?!
We have to give kudos to these two for their amazing personal touches. They brought their passion for hiking and breweries into their big day. Cecelia grew up on a farm and always dreamed of a barn reception. Having Bloom Lake Barn as a part of their day mad that dream possible. They love Interstate State Park and chose to get married nearby, so they could go there together immediately following their ceremony. Cecelia even incorporated her garden into her bouquet and they were able to include their dogs in their special day. How adorable are those cut pups?!
Cecelia shares her best wedding planning tips: "Breathe. Stress will be a given, but do not let it cloud the joy of the process!" She adds, "Do not feel obligated to invite everyone, even if they are family.". She mentions that "the day will fly by, so having a timeline will keep everyone on track, and schedule time to snack or eat lunch."
Cecelia and Doug, thank you so much for sharing your beautiful day with us! It looked like an absolute dream and the two of you were radiating with happiness!
